I’ve been thinking about just how much cable TV has been costing me without me even really thinking about it. I mean, I was making plenty of coin and I had a lot of disposable income that I could use to splurge on things without really thinking about it. Now I’m forcing myself to start thinking more of living more within my means and how I can cut costs.
I feel kinda foolish about what I spend on cable TV. I’ve always tried to stay up with new technology but I have to admit that I’ve been slacking awfully bad in this area for the past number of years. The dynamics of living are suddenly changing and I have to adapt and do it quickly.
The first option appears to be to ditch the cable, with the exception of the high speed cable i-net, for a Roku. Is it a bad option? Not really considering that I remember a time before cable TV and only have 3 or 4 channels to watch. I sit back now and wonder why I have 200+ channels available to me now and I only really watch maybe 12 – 15 of them in total.
So we’ll quickly experiment on this and come to a decision soon. Time is of the essence so I can’t squander it. I spend too much time with the tube on anyway and can use it for something else.
